Rule of law applied in violent crime charges

Judging from the headlines, we might believe we live in times that are more violent than in the past. In the wake of several recent trials in which juries acquitted police officers charged in deadly shootings, it might also leave some asking whether justice has taken a biased turn for the worse.

What evidence can police access from your cell?

Ratified in 1791, the drafters of the Fourth Amendment could never have imagined the role cellphones would play our 2017 day-to-day lives. The "right of the people to be secure in their persons, house, papers and effects" was to meant to prohibit "general warrants" for broad search.

Sometimes optimal outcome in criminal case isn't what's expected

Sometimes circumstances when we are in a frail mental state can lead to irrational behavior. If that behavior gets you charged with a criminal act, even if it isn't one of violence, what should the punishment be upon conviction?

Texas among the toughest states for crimes against animals

As with many areas of law, claims of animal cruelty can bring federal or state charges. In some cases, there might be local ordinances addressing the subject. Regardless of what jurisdiction brings animal cruelty charges, it's important to meet them with a strong legal defense and the time to call an attorney to start the process is the instant investigating officers show up.

You have rights under police questioning. They might not tell you

Just because you have the right to remain silent doesn't mean the police have an obligation to let you know it. This might surprise some readers. The recitation of the Miranda warning every time TV and movie cops slap handcuffs on a suspect is so common that it might be easy to think that it's a requirement.
